: Preview of the final Version! :

: 8 channels,fm-synthesis,drumsequencer, :
: wavetable synthesis and MUCH more! :
Welcome to final-sales preview of ** ART OF NOISE **.
What the heck is AON ? I bet you already might have noticed,
that this program is a kind of music tracker. But it is not
yet ANOTHER tracker (like the 1001 protracker clones out there)
but a real NEW tracker, of course completely new coded (no
protracker source used!!). I tried to improve the old protracker
format (which is surely antiquated already since ages..) and to
create a new tracker, which should be the DREAM TRACKER for all
amiga musicians.. (and all who want to become one ;)). I think
I should give you a short summary of the new possibilities that
AON offers you:
- OS2.0 look! no hardware hacking like in protracker
- Reqtools filerequesters
- CPU or copper viewmode split (for pattern-display)
(cpu needs more rasttime, but is more
- More instruments!! (up to 61!!) (1-9,a-z,A-Z)
- More patterns (up to 128) (if you demand more, just
- More song-sequences (Song-Length now up to 256)
- Restart-Position <>0 possible
- nice sequence-list editor
- new songlist-edit short cuts
- More player-commands !! (increased to max. 62, 46 are
already in use!)
- Arpeggio (up to 16) + Any other effect possible
each arpeggio can have up to 7 partnotes, arpeggio
speed is of course changeable
- new effects like vibrato&volume set/slide etc..
- external program SYNCHRONISATION commands
(demos/games and other presentations (easy to use
for e.g. multimedia productions, which shall be
timed with the soundtrack)
- 8 channel control commands
- More notes ;) !!! Highest note is now B-5 !!
- Maximal instrument play-length up to 256k, waveform size
only limited to free memory!!
- Cool new sampler with lots of new effects (digital filter,
flanger/phase distortion/multi-sampling+triggering etc..
- REAL 8 CHANNEL-MODE, *ALL* effects are usable on splitted
channels, that includes loops as well as FULL VOLUME&PITCH
- mix-rate up to 64khz!!!
- Volume-Envelopes for SAMPLES(!!!) and
- Wavetable-Instruments !! ('synthetic' mode)
- SAVES really A LOT OF MEMORY
- no disturbing white noise, just crystal clear sound
- Instrument&Waveform are seperated, so that e.g. 10
instruments can use the same waveform (very useful!)
- saves memory
- create new sound-fx by using different instruments
which still use the same waveform!!
- 2 operators to create cool filter-like sounds!
- create your own drumlines with up to 16 tracks
- mixed in 16bit for optimal quality !
- selectable pitch & sequence-length
- Song-Remark can be detached to every song-module
- up to 32k (even for small novels ;) )
- Instrument names now up to 32 chars
- easy instrument-selecting from the pull-down menu
(just click on the name !) or press amiga+(instr.nr)
- Disable not-needed-song-info saving (like remark/instrument
- saves memory (about 3-36k)
- Protracker-(load format)-compatibility, all key-shortcuts
in AON are just the same as in protracker (+ ofcourse a lot
of new shortcuts)
- STONECRACKER (the best (fastest+most efficient)
- memory usage e.g. for patterns is the same as in protracker,
although there are many many new improvements !!
- many new pattern-edit commands !
- exchange tracks/patterns
- change volume
- wildstar-replace (like in any texteditor!!!!)
- player is easy to include in own productions (saves
player+mod files and executables )
- for the interested guys: The fileformat is MUCH better than
protracker (well, it wasn't so hard to improve THAT format)
- Chunk-format (like e.g. IFF)
- easy to expand (future versions...)
There are is also a huge amount of more detail-improvemements, which
are nevertheless very useful when composing music. Just load the
preview and check it...
